Lynne and I are on the way to Perth, WA, for the wedding of my nephew, Thomas. It is such a lengthy flight to Perth from London and so we decided to stop off for 6 days on the island known as Koh Samet in Thailand which is a two and half hour drive from Bangkok before the short ferry ride over to the island. We are staying at this wonderful resort known as the Paradee and it is an ideal retreat for plenty of rest and relaxation with lots of time for reading, swimming and dozing by the pool and sea.

The Thai staff are so friendly and helpful and everything is so efficiently run. The Thai food in the restaurant is both delicious and well presented and furthermore served with a smiling face on either the beach or round the pool in the evenings.

So if you are on a long haul flight to Australia or New Zealand seriously consider breaking your journey with a few days on Koh Samet. It comes highly recommended. Hope you enjoy the photos.

warm sea!
Well, that all looks quite wonderful! Cold and wet here, though this morning we had clear blue sky and sunshine, so we went for a lovely walk round Ugborough Beacon. Hope you thoroughly enjoy the wedding and mingling with family etc when you get to Perth. Love, Penny
